    You need to go to a good shop and try on everything. The one that fits best is your best choice.

    I'm really happy with my Bauer One55's. It's basically an older mid-range skate, so I think Bauer can make some good mid-ranges.

    Check hockeymonkey. They may still have the high end missions for $150 or even $100 by now.

    hockeytron sharpens your skates for free though. They have some decent stuff and the guys that run it are cool. They helped me pick out some stuff. They really like Lappy! I saw some cool CCMs and Flite. Can't vouch for quality though.

    Ignore all other advise and listen to this. You cannot go into it saying "I want a Bauer/Easton/Graf skate." You need to try them on and see what fits your particular feet best.

    If you want to post up some pics of your feet, we might be able to help get you moving in the right direction.

    This is the best answer

    ...even if it came from an internet pervert with a foot fetish

    Slightly off topic: If any ladies need help picking a perfect bra, the Jeffrock fitting method is a proven technique and we'll be glad to help here...

    Yes, everyone's feet are different, the best way I've found is to go and try some in your price range on, and get the most comfortable, that's the way to roll.


    Cheers and good luck!

    If you wear a size 9 shoe/6.5 in skates, I have some that have never been baked and only sharpened once that I could get rid of for 50 bucks and save you the extra 100
